Gentle braising is an excellent cooking method for fish, keeping it moist and succulent. Spiced with care and simmered in a little coconut milk, the fish here is delicious with plain noodles or rice. For a casserole with a livelier flavour, leave the seeds in the chilli or use one of the tiny, very hot Thai chillies.
For a special meal, monkfish fillet can be used instead of the fish suggested in the main recipe. It takes slightly longer to cook, so increase the time in step 3 to 12–14 minutes.
Fennel and fennel seeds are said to aid digestion and help relieve stomach cramps. In India toasted fennel seeds are chewed to prevent bad breath. * Some studies have shown that chillies can help to reduce blood cholesterol levels. There are also reports suggesting that eating chillies can help to protect against gastric ulcers by causing the stomach lining to secrete a mucus which coats the stomach, thus protecting it from damage by irritants such as aspirin or alcohol.

I love thai green curry and this was a nice alternative. the recipe list seemed kind of daunting, but once you have the spices in order it's actually an easy dish ready in no time. Lovely, thanks xx - 28 Jan 2009
